JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel is the only Hyaluronic acid filler
that is FDA approved to last up to 1 year.

What Is JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel?
As we age, our skin changes. Over time, the natural volume of youthful skin begins to diminish as wrinkles and folds form. But, with Juvéderm™ injectable gel, you don't have to just sit back and let it happen!

JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel is a smooth consistency gel made of hyaluronic acid—a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration. JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel is injected under the skin to instantly restore your skin's volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds, like your “smile lines” or “parentheses” (nasolabial folds—the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth).

Visualize how you might look with JUVEDERM treatments.

JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel provides a smooth, natural look and feel—so everyone will notice (but no one will know)! In fact, studies show superior results of JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel compared to a collagen-based dermal filler.†

Almost 90% of all study volunteers who were treated with both JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel and another dermal filler† preferred JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel!

JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel is the first FDA-approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler that is proven to be safe and effective for persons of color.

How JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel Works
JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel dermal filler is a nonsurgical treatment. JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel is injected under the skin using a fine needle to augment, or fill, the soft tissue of the dermis—the dense inner layer of skin beneath the epidermis—to add volume and diminish wrinkles and folds. JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel l is great for your "laugh lines," "smile lines" or "parentheses" (nasolabial folds), or "marionette lines" (oral commissures).

JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel is a "next-generation" filler. It is made from hyaluronic acid—a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to hydrate and add volume. Hyaluronic acid may diminish with age, contributing to the formation of wrinkles and folds. JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel works to correct this by restoring hyaluronic acid in your skin, helping to smooth wrinkles and folds

A unique manufacturing process

JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel has a unique manufacturing process that provides a high concentration of cross-linked hyaluronic acid for long-lasting results. It also creates a smooth consistency gel that flows easily into the skin during the injection process and provides a smooth, natural look and feel—so everyone will notice (but no one will know)! Only JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel is so smooth—other hyaluronic acid fillers currently on the market are made of granular consistency gels.

*JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel is indicated for injection into the mid to deep dermis for correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds (such as nasolabial folds).

What to Expect During Treatment
Because JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel is a simple, nonsurgical wrinkle treatment, there is minimal recovery or downtime. So you can make an appointment to stop by the office for treatment on the way home from work or the gym, or even while the kids are at soccer practice—and get right back to your life. Here's what to expect when you visit for treatment.

Before you go: Avoid any medications that can prolong bleeding, such as aspirin and non-steroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs), for at least a week prior to treatment in order to reduce the risk of bruising and bleeding at the injection site. (Tylenol is okay).

When you arrive: If this is your first visit, Dr. Hoenig will ask about your medical history, including any allergies you may have or medications you may take, and will tell you more about wrinkle treatment with JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel . An allergy test is not required.

Determining your treatment needs: Dr. Hoenig will examine the soft tissue of your face to assess the depth of wrinkles and folds to determine your treatment. JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel is available in two formulations—Juvéderm™ Ultra for versatility in contouring and volumizing facial wrinkles and folds, and Juvéderm™ Ultra Plus, a robust formulation for volumizing and correcting deeper folds and wrinkles.

Before the procedure: Dr. Hoenig will use topical and/or injectable anesthesia to numb the treatment area first.

The procedure: Dr. Hoenig will ease the JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel under your skin to augment, or fill, wrinkles and folds. Following the injection, he may gently massage the treated areas. The procedure is quick and easy. The injection itself usually takes only about 15 minutes.

After the procedure: With JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel , there is minimal recovery or downtime.

For the first 24 hours following treatment, you should avoid strenuous exercise, excessive sun or heat exposure, and consumption of alcoholic beverages in order to help minimize the risks of temporary redness, swelling, and/or itching at the treatment sites. After the treatment, some temporary injection-related reactions may occur, including redness, pain, firmness, swelling, and bumps. Studies have shown that these are usually mild to moderate in nature and clear up on their own in 7 days or less. If you experience swelling at the injection site, you can apply an ice pack for a brief period.

Seeing results: You should see an immediate improvement in the treatment areas. Most patients need one treatment to achieve optimal wrinkle smoothing. And one treatment could smooth your lines and wrinkles for up to 1 year! However, results may vary and correction is temporary. Supplemental “touch up” treatments may be required to achieve and maintain optimal results.
